Schedule Synology Sync?

Hi,

I live in a 'rural' area and have slow and expensive internet. The price goes down midnight to 5am. I was wondering if there is a way to pause/unpause (or something) Synology Drive to take advantage of my cheaper hours.

Thanks, Alex

Thanks,

Yes and No. It does pause, but not schedule. This means I have to get up at 5am and Pause, then again at midnight to resume. That's no fun--especially for a hobby activity. So, I guess the question is really, is there a way to pause/resume automatically rather than manually?

A.

Alex,

Are you on a Mac or PC? There are different tools that you can use to block different apps/ports at certain times of the day. Let me know what OS you're on and I'll see if I can recommend something to you.

Sincerely,
Ray

Ray,

I'm running Windows 10. Thanks

Alex,

Perfect. Use an app called Cold Turkey. You can schedule Ports 5000-5001 (Synology Drive) to be blocked all the time except for 12am-5am.
